Geneviève Trépanier

Holder of a Master’s degree in International Studies and a Bachelor’s degree in social work, Geneviève has worked in the world of international solidarity and project management for the past ten years. Passionate about human rights issues and cross-cultural perspectives, her career commenced with a mandate geared towards assessing human rights issues in Guatemala in 2011. Motivated to bring together people of different ethnic origins, she subsequently worked for six years as a coordinator, trainer and guide, helping to initiate teenagers to international cooperation, mainly in Latin America. Sensitive to inequalities and human rights issues, she collaborated with the IBCR in 2018 regarding the Voluntary Cooperation Program monitoring in Peru. More recently, Geneviève also worked as an event planner consultant for the City of Montreal administration as well as for the “Comité régional d’éducation pour le développement international de Lanaudière (CRÉDIL)”, where she organized, among others things, the “Journées québécoises de la solidarité internationale” in 2018.

As a proactive multi-tasker, Geneviève joins the IBCR team because she strongly believes that every child, locally or abroad, deserves a fair chance to develop and flourish to its fullest potential. Therefore, she hopes that her work will contribute to a more egalitarian world.

Geneviève is fluent in French, Spanish and English.
